🎧 SOUND ON! Listen to an excerpt from Calm’s new meditation, Meditation for Restful Sleep, by renowned author, meditation teacher and Calm Guest Instructor Elisha Goldstein (@mindfullivingcollective). Link in bio.⠀ ⠀ “Our overactive minds prevent us from sleeping. In this meditation we shift the focus from thinking to total relaxation of the body. We transition into using the breath to release any unsettling feelings of agitation, restlessness, or worry. We deepen our body’s overall restful state with abdominal breathing, holding the realization that there’s nowhere else to be, nothing else to do. We just allow our body to be as it is, in a natural state of relaxed awareness, letting us drift into a peaceful night’s rest.” — Elisha Goldstein ⠀ ⠀ #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #sleep #breathe #calm
